Bank Of America Free Museums 2018

Bank Of America Free Museums 2019

Great news! The Bank of America free museums program called “Museums on Us” is returning for 2019! The program was introduced by Bank of America a few years back and has become very popular. Let’s take a look at the program and what you need to know to get your free museum access from Bank of America.

Bank of America Free Museums – Who Is Eligible?

Bank of America has made their free museum program simple and easy for their customers to enjoy for 2019. In order to be eligible for Museums on Us you need to present one of the following at a participating museum on eligible dates:

  • Bank of America credit or debit card
  • Merrill Lynch credit or debit card

Museums on Us 2019 Terms

One of our first times using Museums on Us back in 2014. The Seattle Art Museum is back on the Bank of America free museums list for 2019!

Museums on Us – How Many Tickets?

Each cardmember gets one free ticket to a participating museum. Put another way, you should be able to get a free ticket for each Bank of America or Merrill Lynch debit or credit card you have, although some locations may limit you to one per person even if you have multiple cards. Either way, Museums on Us is a great perk that can bring you $100-200 per year in value if you maximize it.

The Museums on Us calendar has now been updated for 2019! This is great news and an awesome perk! You can also find the Bank of America free museums calendar HERE.

Bank of America also has a Museums on Us interactive map to show you which museums participate.

Henry Ford Museum ReviewConclusion

Bank of America’s Museums on Us 2019 is a great perk that everyone should be able to take advantage of at one point or another.  You can use this perk at your local museum or while you travel. We have enjoyed The Henry Ford Museum at home in Detroit and the American Museum of Natural History when in New York.

I look forward to another visit or two to the Henry Ford this year as well as the Michigan Science Center. Bottom line is this is a great and inexpensive way you can spend some time with friends and family doing something different. Whether it is around the block or across the country Bank of America Free Museums 2019 provides a lot of possibilities worth checking out!

  1. i was wondering if authorized users added on my card ate also eligible for free admission or if there is any way the museum will know that it is only for primary cardholder

    • I think that would work since they have only looked at the card in my experience. They don’t really do anything with it.

  2. Again, nothing in the STL local area. I did noticed that the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, which is in the KC area is shown. Both the National World War I Museum and Memorial and the Union Station’s Science Center, Science City are easily visited if you took Amtrak into KC. On a previous visit to D.C., I did go inside the Newseum.

    • They don’t seem to really add to the roster at all which is kind of sad but they don’t seem to lose anything either. I wish more museums would jump on board. Most people bring non cardmembers or kids etc. with them so it does drive traffic.

    • So many of STL’s cultural institutions are free. So please let me know what ones you’d consider being good adds, as I can’t think of one off the top of mind that could use this benefit.

      • Perhaps the aquarium in the works at Union Station. My understanding is that the planned Zoo extension out in North County will have an admission fee. The National Museum of Transportation out in St. Louis County. The Missouri Botanical Garden in the city, along with the related Butterfly House and Shaw Nature Reserve. D.C. has so many free places to visit, yet admission packages are offered nationally.

        Sorry to learn the Newseum was sold to Johns Hopkins University.

  3. Most rigid enforcement I have encountered was in Chicago: I had two different BoA cards, each in my name. Even though I smiled and was polite, I could not use one to get admission for my wife. I was free. She paid. On our next visit, she used her shiny, new authorized user card with her name on it — success.

    I really like the program. IMHO, BoA isn’t strong on card benefits. This is one of their best! Most museums aren’t cheap anymore. They realize they are entertainment and price accordingly. In New York and Chicago it saves the two of us $50-70 each time we can use it. And we also don’t feel that because we paid so much to get in, we have to stay for hours. Go see that special exhibit and then leave.

    • I agree that it is one of their better perks and I still think it is underused. I like that a simple debit card gets you in as well.
